This was great! Gave us access to everything that we wanted. There is no guide included, but that’s fine because we just used an audioguide. I recommend getting there as early as possible to try to get a head start on those lines. Our time was 9:30 and we got there at 8:45, and we were in by latest 9:20.

Nick was excellent!! Very friendly and knowledgeable. He made the walking tour enjoyable, pleasant, and gave us a lasting impression. Highly recommend!

Very blingy, unfortunately the Coach house wasn't open, would have liked to see the coaches. Gardens are stunning.

Everything was great in the organization and all the workers were very nice. We would repeat without a doubt.

The gardens were beautiful as was the castle but it was too crowded
